Joining a big team in Bayern Munich’s class doesn’t necessarily guarantee a player can feel happy. As experienced by Leon Goretzka, the German midfielder looked upset with his situation at the Bundesliga club.
For information, Leon Goretzka joined Bayern Munich in the summer transfer market in 2018. Die Roten gets the player’s services for free, after his contract with Schalke expires.
In the 2018/19 campaign yesterday, Leon Goretzka himself appeared quite often at Bayern Munich. Coach Niko Kovac gave him 30 times the chance to play in the League, with 23 of them playing as a starter.
However, the Croatian manager was kicked out at the start of the 2019/20 season. The dismissal of Niko Kovac then immediately reduced the playing quota for the 25-year-old player.
Under the direction of the new coach Hansi Flick, he only played 15 Bundesliga matches, and only eight of them played as a starter.
Last time, precisely in the match against Augsburg last weekend, Goretzka managed to score a goal in the 2-0 victory won by Die Roten. But unfortunately, he also dropped as a substitute in the match.
Talking about the situation, the midfielder admitted that he was in a very fit condition. Despite accepting the coach’s decision, but Leon Goretzka cannot deny that he was disappointed with the situation in the second season with Bayern.
“I’m currently in top form, maybe the best performance of my career,”
“Of course I’m not happy if I don’t play from the start. I can say it openly and honestly. I have to talk about it. I ask for your understanding. “I have to accept the coach’s decision,” Leon Goretzka said, quoted by Goal International.
Furthermore, the player who once defended VfL Bochum is determined to be able to penetrate the first team of Bayern Munich. He too will take advantage of every opportunity to show his worthiness to the coach.
“I want to be sure to stay in shape and continue working. If there is a chance, you must take it. I think that’s my job to do. I have the right to enter the first team, “said Leon Goretzka.
